(With photographs by Angela Atwater)

Yellow Bird was a very happy bird and she had many friends.

Some of her friends were yellow, and some were not.

That did not matter to Yellow Bird, because she liked the other birds no matter what their color. She was very good friends with Green Bird and Pink Bird. They were older and they taught Yellow Bird about life.

About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."


The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.


The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
